The Great Outdoors: Keeping Track of Snowpack


It is snow survey season. While most of us are happy to play in the white stuff, a select few are busy measuring it for water content. In this week’s Great Outdoors, Brooke Snavely takes us along on a snow survey to determine how much water will be available for farming, fishing and water sports later this summer.

We appreciate the folks with the Department of Agriculture for taking us along on their surveying trip. It is important work being done in Oregon’s back country and we are proud to cover it.

A special thanks to our Great Outdoors sponsor, Parr Lumber, for giving us the time and resources to explore the lakes, rivers and mountains across our beautiful state every Wednesday night on Central Oregon Daily.
